This "Eastern Passage" into the harbour is not the main shipping channel due to its shallow depths; the main shipping channel lies west of McNabs Island. The Eastern Passage is largely used by small recreational boats and fishing vessels during inclement weather as the island affords shelter from prevailing winds. Prior to the European settlers, Eastern Passage was a season home to the Mi'kmaq for thousands of years. Europeans began seasonal use of the channel starting about while the Mi'kmaq shifted to McNab's island. The Eastern Passage area was granted to ranger Joseph Gorham , but he did not settle the passage and the land was regranted in to Jacob Horn, the first recorded settler who was soon followed by other families.
These ethnic groups continue to make up a large portion of the population of Eastern Passage.

Fort Clarence formerly the Eastern Battery , a large gun battery was constructed beside Eastern Passage in at the beginning of the French and Indian War. Built to defend the harbour, the battery provided a cross fire with batteries on Georges Island and McNabs Island. In the late s a Martello Tower was built at each of the three sites.
During the American Civil War , The iron Confederate naval cruiser Tallahassee sailed into Halifax Harbour on August 18, to take on bunker coal and water and then used the Eastern Passage channel to escape, for it was believed that Union naval forces were waiting at the main harbour entrance. In the s and s, a number of Eastern Passage residents from the Hartlan and Henneberry families proved important sources of Canadian folk songs and stories to Nova Scotia folklorist Helen Creighton.
A Warm Welcome
Serious reductions to the CFB Shearwater base in the s and the shutdown of the Ultramar Refinery challenged the economy of Eastern Passage in the s. One response was the redevelopment of the small craft harbour, long known as "the Crick" or "the cove" but rechristened in as "Fisherman's Cove", a tourist attraction which combines a working fishing harbour with gift shops and restaurants.
In Fishermans Cove opened as a tourist attraction. The attraction had things such as shops and restaurants. It was the last season of the show filmed in a privately held park.
